Champagne just naturally goes with chocolate. Of course, champagne is like hardwood floors; it goes with everything!
One thing it doesn’t go with is children. Or your friends that abstain from alcohol and, of course, designated drivers. So here's a recipe for chocolate champagne truffles made with Amoretti Premium Champagne Syrup, which is alcohol free, making it a delicious treat for everyone on your list!
Cinnamon and hazelnuts are also great with chocolate, so we rolled some of these truffles in ground cinnamon and hazelnut meal. You may want to double, or even triple, this recipe if you’re expecting company!
- Combine the Champagne Syrup, the Blue Agave Syrup, and both chocolates in the top of a double boiler.
- Heat over simmering water until the chocolate has completely melted, stirring constantly.
- Pour the chocolate mixture into a container and cover the surface with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 2 hours or until firm.
- Place cocoa, cinnamon, and hazelnut meal in three separate shallow dishes.
- Scoop the chocolate mixture into 15 equal portions and roll each portion into a ball.
- Roll 5 chocolate balls in each of the dishes until the truffles are completely coated.
- Refrigerate the finished truffles until ready to serve.
